Srinagar: Advisor to Jammu & Kashmir Governor, Khurshid Ahmad Ganai has asked Deputy Commissioners of the state to fix targets for line officers for registration of workers under Pradhan Mantri Shram Yogi Mandhan (PMSYM) scheme.
He also took stock of the implementation of this newly rolled out centrally sponsored scheme in the state which is meant for the unorganised workers in the age group of 18-40 years.
Around one million potential beneficiaries are likely to be enrolled in the state under this scheme. Advisor Ganai urged Deputy Commissioners to ensure that each district enrols around 50,000 workers for this scheme.
He stressed upon the officials to create enough awareness using all the media including the vernacular press of the state. He also instructed them to use the opportunity of ‘Back to the Village’ program to create awareness among the general public about the scheme. (AIR NEWS)
